Thousands of people marched for a condemned man in Atlanta Friday.

Troy Davis has captured worldwide attention with claims that he's innocent of killing an off-duty Savannah police officer in 1989.

He's set to die on Wednesday after years of delays, but his supporters hope to persuade the state pardons board to grant him clemency. Davis has avoided execution three times since 2007.

Last year, a federal judge ruled Davis did not have enough evidence to clear his name.
